"He Ain't the Leavin' Kind" as written by and Michael William/thrasher Dulaney....
They tried their best to drag him out
Of a courthouse down in Montgomery
And now they wanna kick him out of school
And take him off our money
They can take those words off of paper and stone
But he ain't gone, no

He ain't the leavin' kind
He'd never walk away
Even from those who don't believe
And wanna leave him behind
He ain't the leavin' kind

She stayed mad at him for a lot of years
For takin' her husband
Started losin' her faith and thinkin' that her life meant nothin'
But when she looks at those kids she raised all by herself
She knows she had some help, yeah, she knows

He ain't the leavin' kind
He'd never walk away
Even from those who don't believe
And wanna leave him behind
He ain't the leavin' kind

No matter what you do
No matter where you go
He's always right there with you

Even from those you don't believe
And wanna leave him behind
He ain't the leavin' kind
No, no

(He ain't the leavin'...
He ain't the leavin' kind)
He ain't the leavin'...
(He ain't the leavin'...

He ain't the leavin' kind
He ain't the leavin' kind)
(He ain't the leavin'...
He ain't the leavin' kind)
He ain't the leavin' kind

    General Commentthis song is completely about God, it took me a while to understand it though. the first line is talking about how the Ten Commandments had to be taken out of that courthouse in alabama a while back, when its talking about school it means that kids cant pray in school anymore, and the money thing is when they were trying to take "In God We Trust" off of the coins, and in the bridge it is saying that "no matter what you do, no matter where you go He's always right there with you" which is so true

    incredible song rascal!!! keep up the great work

    General CommentI'm pretty sure the second part is about God. But first verse doesn't really make sense to me, who's it talking about? I still love this song. What do you guys think?

    General CommentThe entire song is about God. The chorus clued me into it, but the more I looked at it, I realized the whole thing is. In the first verse, the courthouse in Montgomery refers to this decision (cnn.com/2003/LAW/08/27/ten.commandments/); kicking 'him' out of school I assume refers to the general hesitation to refer to religion in the public school environment; the money - "In God We Trust"; and the removal of 'words' - perhaps the slight change of wording in the Pledge of Allegiance?

    General Commentmnsdq. the "words" are the words on the dollar bills and the stones of the ten commandments sculpture. To take those words off paper and stone would be to take him off the dollar and the sculpture

    but yeah

    good song

    General CommentYeah, it took me a while to figure it out too, but the second verse clued me in. I didn't get the first verse til now, but I figured it had something to do with not wanting religion shoved down the throats of kids at school

    General CommentYep. GOD, isn't he amazing. I had heard this sone hundreds of times before but just thought it was about some dead beat that was trying to keep his life. But on the way home from a bible study I was listining to this song and when the chorus came on for a second time I felt like I got slapped in the face because it all made perfect scense. No matter how far and how long you run you can never get away from GOD's presence.
